"This little book is a translation, the only one from the Latin, of the Preces Gertrudiance, a manual of devotions compiled in the seventeenth century from the Suggestions of Divine Piety of St. Gertrude and St. Mechtilde, nuns of the Order of St. Benedict. Of this work Alban Butler says, in his life of St. Gertrude, that it is " perhaps the most useful production, next to the writings of St. Teresa, with which any female saint ever enriched the Church." Care has been taken to...

The Holy Ghost is the Uncreated Will of God. His devout servants cannot honour Him better than by making their wills uniform with this Divine Will. This Will of God was our Lord's normal rule of conduct when on earth. He says: "I do always those things that please Him;" and again: "Not My Will but Thine be done." By willing what God wills we come to have "the mind of Christ," and being joined to the Lord, have one Spirit with Him. THE TRANSLATOR. Digitized by...

"PREFACE Devotion to St. Anthony of Padua, a love of his personality, and the bibliography in his honor have so increased from century to century that fifty years ago Pope Leo XIII could style him "not only the saint of Padua, but the saint of the whole world." Like his great spiritual father, St. Francis of Assisi, whose livery he assumed and whose rule he professed, he has become "everybody's saint." No wonder, then, that literature concerning his life, sanctity,...

"INTRODUCTION ...To enter, however, into all the virtues of the Saint, whose Life is now for the first time presented in the English language, would be only anticipating what the readers will discover for themselves. Suffice it, therefore, to say that, numerous and beautiful as they were, they might be summed up in her jealous observance of the Gospel Counsels, and these, in turn, reduced to her love of the Cross and Jesus Crucified. May the following pages, though imperfectly rendered...

"The 'Confessions' themselves have ever been a favourite Christian study. St. Augustine says of them himself, 'The thirteen books of my Confessions praise God, Holy and Good, on occasion of that which has in me been good or evil, and raise up man's understanding and affections to Him: for myself, they did so while they were being written, and now do, when read. Let others think ofthem, as to them seems right; yet that they have and do much please many brethren, I know.'" Library of...

"It has long been felt that the publication of a complete and authentic collection of the prayers and good works to which the watchful and beneficent generosity of the Roman Pontiffs has attached indulgences, would be very useful, not to say necessary, since the last collection, or Raccolta, neither appeared to be free from imperfection, nor, what is of more consequence, contained all the indulgences granted up to the present time. Now, it is very important that the faithful should know...

"S.

"The Treatises of St. Cyprian may suitably be preceded by the short Memoir of his life written by his Deacon Pontius, and the Proconsular Acts of his Martyrdom. The Memoir is recommended to our attention, not so much by any special excellence in itself, as by the circumstance that it is written by one who was about the Bishop's person, who attended him in exile, and who was a witness of his death. The reader need scarcely be reminded, that the Deacon in St. Cyprian's age, as afterwards,...

This source is the classical life by Father Virgil Cepari of the Society of Jesus. It is impossible to find in any other biographer of S. Aloysius the qualities which we meet with in Cepari...."
